It’s going to be two episodes in a row that Special Agent Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) is tasked with keeping an eye on a colleague’s daughter… and that’s not going to go as well in the next episode as it did when he watched over Dr. Jimmy Palmer’s (Brian Dietzen) daughter in “The Helpers.”

In the promo for the March 7 episode, “First Steps,” Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) tasks Torres with a very important assignment: watching over his daughter, Kayla (Naomi Grace). As Torres sees it, he’s essentially “babysitting.” But that should be easy, right? After all, as Jessica Knight (Katrina Law) tells Kayla, “don’t expect anything too exciting on your first assignment.” (As revealed in “Fight or Flight,” Kayla recently trained with NCIS.) It’s going to be “basic, simple,” Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) agrees. In other words,” boring,” Knight says.

But that’s far from the truth, as they’re looking at the murder of a reservist Navy Seal surgeon. Still, “you’re not getting as much as a paper cut on my watch,” Torres insists. But as the promo (below) shows, Kayla’s going to get in quite a bit of trouble. Watch for more:

This isn’t too surprising, given that the logline for the episode teases that the team is “forced to bring” her in “to help with a highly dangerous mission.” Kayla working with the team comes in the episode a week after Victoria Palmer (Elle Graper) was at work with her father following a suspension from school (for fighting). When Palmer and forensic scientist Kasie Hines (Diona Reasonover) were exposed to a biotoxin, it fell on Torres to keep Victoria distracted.
